AMD or Age-Related Macular (Retina) Degeneration
AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in the elderly. According to the latest studies, it affects about 8% of the French population, including 1% of people aged 50-55, about 10% of 65-75 year olds and 25-30% of those over 75 years old.
What are the first clinical symptoms of AMD ? SDepending on the severity of the illness, visual acuity may be reduced, difficulties in reading (due to needing more light) and slight distortion of certain objects (straight lines seem warped). At a later stage, patients may see black spots in their central field of vision, and vision may be distorted.
AMD is the degradation of a small central area of the retina, causing a black spot directly in front of the field of vision. AMD can be disabling, however, it does not render the patient completely blind, since the images seen around the area of the macula, allow a certain vision of the space and the environment.
GLAUCOMA : Glaucoma is a serious and complex disease that affects the optic nerve. It can lead to a person progressively losing their sight since it is the optic nerve that sends visual information to the brain.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world.
When the optic nerve is damaged, only surgery can treat glaucoma.
